Message from the President

In July, the County Board voted to advertise a third lot coverage proposal and scheduled a vote on lot coverage for the November County Board meeting. The third proposal will be the main item for the Civic Federation's October program. Given the complexity of the issue, we will follow a similar format to the special meeting on lot coverage held last April:
  • The Planning & Zoning Committee will make a presentation that describes all three lot coverage proposals, reviews Civic Federation action to date (including action on the first two lot coverage proposals), and gives the committee's analysis of the third proposal.

  • Staff and committee members will form a panel to answer questions from delegates.

  • All attending the October meeting-the public and voting delegates-will complete a very brief survey designed to capture the assembly's reaction to the third proposal.

  • During a short break, the Planning & Zoning Committee members will compile survey results and revise a draft resolution (prepared prior to the meeting) to reflect the survey results.

  • Survey results will be announced and the committee's resolution will be moved for discussion and a vote. Only delegates may vote on the resolution.

The Planning & Zoning Committee has provided information about the third proposal. The materials include:

    1. A description of the third lot coverage proposal, how it differs from the prior proposals, and how it responds to the Civic Federation's resolution on lot coverage adopted at the special meeting in April

    2. A summary of the pros and cons of all three options that have been advertised

    3. A list of the properties that would be non-conforming under the new proposal, by civic association
